FOR DEMOCRATIC AND EUROPEAN VALUES

on Wednesday, 11 October 2017 07:20.

IPCM statement on the situation in Catalonia

The International Platform for Cooperation and Migration (IPCM/PICM), which brings together some 20 social organizations from various European countries, wants to state publicly its position on the serious events taking place in Catalonia, Spain:

  1. The IPCM, since its creation and according to its statutes, promotes "the principles of defense of freedom, democracy, Christian humanism, tolerance, human development and social welfare."

  2. For this reason, the IPCM sees with great concern the division that the extremist nationalist ideology has produced within Catalan society, as well as the constant violation of the legal and constitutional framework by the Catalan authorities, whose project involves not only breaking Spain but also leaving the European Union.

  3. The IPCM reiterates its firm commitment to European values based on the rule of law, individual rights, non-discrimination, subsidiarity and solidarity between territories and states.

  4. Precisely because of its continued attention to migrants, the IPCM is especially supportive of those who, because of their origin or language, are being discriminated or threatened.

  5. As an international platform, the IPCM is strictly respectful of international law, the existence of states and their sovereignty, as is undoubtedly the case of the Kingdom of Spain.

  6. The IPCM fully relies on the government of Spain, in dialogue with political parties, to restore constitutional order and to avoid the social confrontation provoked by ideological reasons typical of the 30's of last century.
